Professor Scott considers teaching in both the classroom and lab as an interactive experience. He sees his position as an educator as one of facilitation and encouragement in learning and applying concepts and skills. He finds great joy in watching students' progress in their knowledge and abilities along their journey to becoming Physical Therapist Assistants.
